A good cheap NIC

Edwardb92, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: This network interface card can be picked up for about £20 nowadays and is the card i used in my old PC, which is rarely used now but still has adequate capabilities. This network interface card was actually the one that came when we purchased it and can be easily found.

Great card

Ms. S. Gray, Amazon
11 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this card as a test to see how the card performed before I upgrade my whole home network to gigabit (testing it at the lower speeds). It was very easy to configure with my Windows 2000 Server machine which also dual boots with Ubuntu linux.

Wake on LAN? It does now!

Steve, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: Main reason for purchasing this card was so that it could be used for Wake On LAN. But it would appear that Belkin don't support this feature with this card. Hmmm... A challenge! One poster elsewhere stated that this card uses the Marvell Yukon 88E8xxx chipset.

Great product

Jerome Dubiez, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: Worked straight off the box on my XP system. I'm achieving the full 100MB/s, can't comment on the Gigabit speed, my router isn't fast enough. Dead easy to install, just follow the instructions provided.

Simple high speed communication between adjacent PCs

Alan053175, Amazon
29 July 2011
  • Summary: This product works well to create a simple connection between two PCs without an intermediate bridge or router. Make sure both PCs have the same make of gigabit card, as they don't all talk together.

No problems

JM, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: Installed a doddle, though the drivers the Windows Vista Business tried to install by default were slightly old (meaning less configuration options), but this was easily corrected by installing the latest drivers from the belkin website (note - choose realtek drivers, not Belkin!).

Does exactly what it says on the tin

Reader from London, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: Simple, sensibly priced card to upgrade a PC from the stanard 10/100 network connection to full-blown Gigabit (i.e. 'up to 1000') which can be very useful when moving large files around a home network (e.g. video onto a Network Attached Storage device) ...

Great to start with but then...

SteveInLondon, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: The card was simplicity itself to install, provided you've installed the Belkin software first. It certainly speeded up traffic between my PC and my NAS devices. But. After a couple of months, it started to erratically drop speed down to 100Mbs - sometimes it would boot at 1000Mps and stay there for...

belkin gigabit NIC

rjheartfield, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: This gigabit NIC for the price is outstanding. It does the job required without any complaints - if not a little resource hungry. Taking into consideration the price, no needs for drivers (Windows sees this as a generic NIC and so has in built drivers that can be used for it).
